The Light Fellowship partners with many of the most rigorous intensive language and cultural immersion programs in East Asia. Programs are reviewed by Yale faculty and staff to ensure alignment with Yale coursework. In addition to core language classes, several of the programs offer modules exclusively for Light Fellows.
Tip: Searching for the program that fits you best should include discussions with your Yale language instructors, faculty and Light Fellowship staff. A clear assessment of your own learning style and personal goals can also help determine where best to study. Peer advice from students who have studied at these programs in the past is also available through the Light Fellows' Bulletin Board or by attending one of several events on campus hosted by the Light Fellowship Student Advisory Committee.
